Will a bad dryer stop the compresses from coming on?

There isn't a lot that can go wrong with a receiver/dryer in an automobile air conditioning system, unless you have damaged it. That shouldn't stop the compressor clutch from engaging. The sensor that is usually on the side of the receiver/dryer detects the pressure of the refrigerant. If the pressure drops below a certain point, the sensor will not allow the clutch to engage. It's possible that the receiver/dryer has a hole in it, but that's usually caused by damage, not by normal use. However, the clutch itself can go bad, since it works with a magnetic coil that can burn out. You can check that by following the wire coming out the back of the clutch (behind the pulley) up to the nearest connector and testing it there with an ohmmeter. If it is open, you'll need to pull the pulley to replace. Better take it to a air conditioning shop.

Can you stack your washer on your dryer?

That's backwards, as a washer is much heavier than a dryer, particularly when it's full of water. There are over/under units, but you can't simply set a regular dryer on top of a regular washer (or vice versa, which is a bad idea anyway).

What could be wrong when your electric dryer will not start?

Usually there is only a few things to keep a dryer from starting, 1 - one leg of your power is out. The dryer runs on 230 volts but the motor is only 115 volts, so if one side of your breaker is bad or one fuse has opened the motor might not run, 2 - door switch could be bad, 3 - timer could be bad, 4 - motor itself is bad, if the start winding is open usually the motor will just hum and not turn the drum.

What I do is I use a blow dryer and blow dry my animal. But if you do this, do not get your animal to close to the blow dryer. Or you can let your pet outside on a warm day. Or if its not too bad, you can rub him in a towel.
